The fitness center was good as was the complimentary breakfast. The only negative is that it was hard to get into hotel as there was no entrance from the main highway...

We had a wonderfully spacious suite at this clean, fresh, well-maintained property. Two adults and two children and we rented a crib; plenty of space for all of us plus visitors to the room. The staff was friendly and courteous, and when they learned we were in town for a funeral they were respectful and appropriate. The free breakfast buffet...

Very clean lobby and breakfast area. Excellent customer service at check in and out. Very clean rooms. Pool area was also nice and neat. EXCELLENT breakfast! There wasn't any tables left when we went to eat though. Pretty crowded but that just backs up the fact that the food was great! Wonderful staff! Highly recommended! We will be back!

Not a lot of hotels in small Columbus, NE, which is probably why the property is getting a little long in the tooth. Very friendly and helpful staff, and the hotel serves a very nice happy hour with free beer and snacks. Room is a tad bit worn and the beds and furniture could use an upgrade. Great breakfast.

They have a small selection of movies which was unexpected and a great joy to my kids, and mid-afternoon snacks.
